I received the following post from Cap'n as a result of a lack of communication on the ride report. In the end I did get a report and it sounds like the guys who showed up, rode a bit, sang some kumbya, and held hands through some good hot sauce tastings.
If the FT3 riders are non-responsive, I would like to submit the following remote location ride report:
Met with some cool transpo consultants in Chico, finished up the work then hit the road (with consultants in tow) riding the first big and famous Wildflower Century “Honey Run” climb from Chico to Paradise. Much to my dismay neither my name nor Lance, or Elliot Lancelot Karpet’s name was painted on the road. There was a lot of interesting artistry to take in though. After the ride we made our way to the Sierra Nevada Brewery where there was much talk of FT3 and the others indicated they have a strong desire to make their way over for a FT3 excursion. In proper FT3 fashing I ordered the Chorizo Pizza, (actually the best pizza ever) and crushed the whole thing. I made them aware of the ‘tabling discussion’ rule, ‘running sweep’ rule and discussed appropriate taco ordering ratios. When they show, they will be somewhat prepared. While this may sound counter-intuitive, the texts from Ghost at the Knott table kept me from driving into an orchard on the way back home. Thanks FT3.
Glad to hear that Cap'n got in some good pizza eating and FT3 discussing. However, it has gotten me onto an idea. It is time we start compiling a Best Of list for FT3.
Best Hot Sauce
Best Road Ride
Send me the thoughts for the best of topic and watch for the voting post.
Until we ride.
